Schools in The Netherlands have a budget to buy new gymnastics equipment every once in a while.
Often old equipment is thrown away.
And this while children in some countries do not have access to any gymnastics equipment at all.
We think that’s a shame!
That is why Sports for Children collects the used gym materials at the Dutch schools.
We bring them to our storage in Helmond, where they are refurbished if necessary. For example, sometimes we make a new vaulting box out of three broken ones.
If everything is in order, the truck fully-loaded with gymnastics equipment and other sports materials departs. It drives abroad to sports clubs and schools that can’t afford to buy such things.
This way we help the children over there to be able to play sports and have fun.
